The Arts for a Community under Stress, Capricon Elementary School in Vrygrond:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
During this Thanksgiving week in the United States I am going to share information about several of the organizations that will be featured as “Beacons of Hope” in the Living Through Creativity resource guide under preparation. I have followed the work of the Butterfly Art Project in Vrygrond, South Africa for over two years. It is a wonderful example of two major themes in my work: local leadership in transforming communities and integrating the arts into a community under continuing stress in daily situations of trauma. Check out all sections of their website and see what is possible when people care enough to make a difference.
